Manos del Uruguay Turns 50!

Yarn dyer Manos del Uruguay turns 50 this year; we thought it’d be fitting to dedicate this post to them for all of the amazing work that they
have done!

In 1968, Manos’ founders, Olga Pardo Santayana de Artagaveytia, Sara Beisso de Souza, Dora Muñoz de Cibils, María del Carmen Bocking,

and Manila Chaneton de Vivo, set out to create a company that provides opportunity for women in villages throughout Uruguay.

Wool and handcrafted items are such an integral part of of Uruguayan culture and Manos strives to celebrate their nation’s artisans by facilitating a sort of union between 12 women-owned co-ops in rural Uruguay. They are certified by the World Fair Trade Organization!
We first started carrying their yarns 7 years ago, and we can't imagine being without them! Each skein is hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind, and its tag is even signed by the artisan whom created it!

Manos del Uruguay has also created this video that dives more into the background of the company and the impact it has made in the lives of so many people. Yarn companies like Manos del Uruguay are few and far between and we are so happy that they exist to bring vibrant color and happiness into the world. Here’s to your first 50 years!

Let's also take a look at five of our favorite yarns from Manos del Uruguay! And be sure to check out their special edition color, Cincuenta (which means 50 in Spanish), that was released in honor of this milestone!
